Hi All, I just bought an older model Astra Constable today ,It`s the type with 1 grip screw per side . At any rate I like the gun! A few differences however. For instance the slide release & its spring are entirely different than the new models. I figured I would strip the gun down ,& clean it. As I was disassembling the gun the slide stop & its little spring popped out of their place. I`m familiar with the positioning of this little spring in the newer guns ,but this little spring aint nothing like the new one! I`ve tried to find a blowup of this old model gun everywhere. I just can`t figure out which way this spring is oriented . I`ve got to be super careful ,because if I screw up ,or launch one of the springs in orbit ,I am screwed ! Anyone with a photo of the left side of the pistol? Could use some help.
